Rovio, the mobile developer behind the hit game Angry Birds, recently sat down for an interview with Pocket-Lint in which it confirmed that it's working on a Windows Phone 7 ersion of the game. Oddly enough, the delay may have been Microsoft's fault. Let's just say Microsoft has a lot of lawyers," Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka said. Vesterbacka also added that there's a 3D version of Angry Birds in the works, but didn't offer any details on what devices it will be launched on. While the term 3D these days might imply the sort of game that would require 3D glasses or a 3D display (such as that found on the LG Optimus 3D), that's probably not really the case. The interview implied that a "3D version" of Angry Birds would just include 3D graphics and would simply be a move away from the 2D-cartoon style of gaming Angry Birds currently offers. "We've built a lot of 3D games before, it's not like it's a lot of learning in order to recreate the technology with Angry Birds," he said.
